The sun banished tights today. Baring hairy pins and oxfords that tap dance makes one feel empowered.
The featured dress is a bit of a dream. Was found at Overflow in Mayfield, which YOU ALL MUST GO TO. Whoever sewed this must have had me in mind. Particularly the tapestry fabric (useful camouflage for castles) and A line. When one doesn't sew A lines are rare beasts.
This babe of a garment is one of my triumvirate of vintage dresses; one of those rare and glorious finds. Resolution: wear it more.
|$15 from Overflow. Oxfords from Frames in Dunedin. Socks retail. Yawn.|
Also, I have less hair.
|I'm a believer in posting real photos of yourself. I always model Don't Forget to Be Awesome posters like this. Fashion blogging needs less DLSR and more double chin.|
|Thanks be to Lochiel for photographing. She was sewing capes. Let us bask in her foresight for bringing a sewing machine to university. Here she models her fine work and Maureen Johnsone Stares readers of this blog.|
